ORDER - The Court GRANTS Mr. Straw's Motion for Leave to File a Supplemental Reply Brief, 26, although in the future he will have only one chance to submit any filing and supplements will not be allowed. For the reasons stated herein, the Court DENIES Mr. Straw's Motion for Preliminary Injunction. 2. Because the Court has found that the Younger abstention doctrine applies, the Court DISMISSES WITHOUT PREJUDICE Mr. Straw's claims to the extent he asks this Court to intervene in or review the disciplinary proceedings currently pending against him before the Indiana Supreme Court. Given that halting those proceedings seems to be the thrust of Mr. Straw's action, as evidenced by his injunction request filed the same day as his Complaint, the Court ORDERS Mr. Straw to SHOW CAUSE by February 3, 2017, why final judgment should not enter and this case be closed. Defendants will have ten days from Mr. Straw's response to this show cause order to file a response brief. Mr. Straw will have seven days from the date of that filing to file a reply brief. No additional filings will be allowed, and neither party will be allowed to amend or supplement the initial briefs filed. Copy sent to Plaintiff via US Mail. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 1/23/2017. (JRB)

ORDER - Mr. Straw's writ of certiorari seeking review of the Seventh Circuit's ruling was denied by the United States Supreme Court on January 11, 2018. Mr. Straw has shown no legally sufficient reason for his not being banned from making further post-judgment filings in this closed case, our prior order(s) stand. He is accordingly hereby PROHIBITED from filing any papers in this cause other than a possible appeal of this order to the Court of Appeals. Any future filings submitted either directly or indirectly by or on behalf of Mr. Straw in this case in violation of this order shall not be accepted by the Clerk, who is directed to return them unfiled. Any papers filed electronically will be stricken. The filings made by Mr. Straw in this case between April 16, 2018 and the date of this entry will not be reviewed by the Court for the same reasons explained. Signed by Judge Sarah Evans Barker on 5/11/2018. Copy Mailed. (CKM)
